Johanna Hällsten & Mary Rose O’Neill
Johanna Hällsten is a Swedish born artist now living in the UK. Working with text, sound and performance, Hällsten’s work focuses on translation between different cultures, species, and forms, to address the interrelation between sounds and environments.
Mary Rose O’Neill is an Irish born artist who now lives between France and the U.K. O’Neill’s work address issues related to narrative, memory, loss and failure. Working with text, images, and performance, the work is ‘slight’, leaving little physical presence and in many cases only exists in memory. The text based works are often incomplete encompassing loss and failure in both content and form.
